Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

As a community of pupils, staff, parents and govenors, St Anne's are determined to ensure that girls with additional educational needs are able to receive the highest quality education. We recognise that the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well being of every pupil matter. We seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude pupils with additional educational needs. All staff embrace the responsiblity for identifying pupils with additional educational needs and St Anne's have a stringent screening, monitoring and assessment process for each pupil. Staff work closely with the SENCo, Assistant AEN Co-ordinator, Teaching Assistants and Learning Mentors to ensure that all pupils have equal opportunity and access to the cirriculum. Subject Leaders are responsible for putting into place schemes of work that assist the subject teacher to plan and implement teaching and learning strategies to meet the diverse needs of pupils in the classroom. Pupils with additional needs are fully supported within the classroom via a differentiated cirriculum and Teaching Assistants. The support is for targeted pupils whose additional needs have been identified and support has been agreed on the pupil's Individual Education Plan. Where appropriate the pupils are withdrawn for individual and small group work. Our Student Support Centre (funded through the Excellence in Cities initiative) provides additional short term 1:1 or small group workshops to explore social, emotional, behavioural and organisational issues. St Anne's works very closely and is fully supported by our linked outside agencies and support groups.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
